Health Benefits

Beneficial Effects

For millennia Bulgarian yogurt has been known in Asia and southeastern Europe for its beneficial effects on the intestinal system. Research done by a Russian biologist Ilia I. Metchnikov (Noble Prize 1908) has suggested that regular consumption of yogurt can help to achieve a longer and healthier life span.

Two Simple Ingredients

Our simple two ingredient recipe and traditional manufacturing process gives our Bulgarian Yogurt its signature tart flavor, naturally creamy texture, and provides you with the proven health benefits of a probiotic superfood (foods whose nutrients are made more readily available to the body and supplemented by the addition of vitamins and minerals through the micro-organisms’ natural lifecycle process).

Where Our Milk Comes From

The majority of the milk we use for our yogurt comes from small to medium size farms in Texas. No artificial hormones have been used in its production and the milk has been tested for antibiotic content before processing. By federal and state law, any milk found to contain antibiotics must be destroyed. The source cattle are fed a preponderance of grass (fresh grass during grazing or dry in the form of hay) and a grain mix during milking.

24 hour Fermentation

Our Bulgarian Yogurt is fermented for a full 24 hours, which greatly reduces the lactose content of the milk making it much easier to digest. Many of our consumers who are lactose intolerant can eat our yogurt as well as those following the SCD and Keto diets.

No Additives

Beware of “yogurt” currently marketed as a confectionary snack item with an implied health benefit simply because it's labeled yogurt. The use of thickeners, stabilizers, preservatives, artificial colors, and added sweeteners  has turned yogurt into a health-negative shadow of what it once was. White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt is a health supporting staple food product meant to be eaten as a meal or as an ingredient in a more complex entrée. Our yogurt contains no thickeners, stabilizers, preservatives, or additives of any kind. We use two ingredients only: milk and culture.

Health Supporting Testimonials

Many of our consumers write to us about how our Bulgarian Yogurt has helped and supported their health issues. They also explain how they like our yogurt because it fits with their health supporting special diets such as SCD, GAPS, Keto, and Paleo. Many doctors, nurses, and veterinarians recommend our yogurt to their patients.


The FDA has regulations that prohibit certain language from being used in the marketing of food products to protect the public from false or unproven health claims. We have [edited] some of the testimonials below to conform to those laws. We make no claims as to the effects of our products on your health by posting these consumer comments.


I love your yogurt product, and I think it tastes great. I can attest to the fact that it actually works. I have had various stomach issues and regularly eating this has helped regulate my issues.” – Justin

I’ve always had stomach issues since I was a child, and nothing ever seemed to work diet, medication, exercise. After coming back from two weeks in Spain, everything I ate and drank caused me extreme pain instantly, and I wasn’t able to properly digest anything.


After 3 months of my symptoms not improving, I told my doctor, expecting I would be put on some sort of antibiotics. My doctor recommended White Mountain Yogurt, and instructed me to give it one week, and come back if it didn’t get better.


Within hours after my first cup, I began feeling [supported]! My stomach pain was [helped], and [my digestion was supported]! I swear by WM yogurt now and eat a cup of it every morning to help promote healthy digestion. Alma

I tell you what. I have [digestive] disease. My mother-in-law introduced me to White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt some time ago. I started taking it every morning with my meds. I noticed a difference in the way I felt right away. It helped [support] the lining of my intestines...where the [digestive disease]is. Basically, it [helps] the lining. When I forget to take it, I can definitely feel the difference.

I recently had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. To my and my gastro doc’s surprise, it was a clean scan...which means remission! I attribute a huge part of [supporting] that remission to your product. I buy 4 to 6 jars at a time at my local Sprouts health food store, and unless there is some unforeseen emergency, I never miss a day.


I’m on this for life now, and that’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite in fact. I have recommended this to every outlet for bowel and intestinal diseases. I have also highly endorsed it in my research study to my gastroenterologist and my nurses.


This stuff really TRULY is a life saver. I know that my testimonial may just be viewed as opinion, but I would highly recommend this product to ANYONE with an inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal disorder, [digestive] disease, or any other gut disorder. If it can help me to remission, imagine what it can do for others. I can only imagine someone who has bad much so that they are in need of an ileostomy. If this helps...the inner lining and...those ulcerations, the gut would heal and they wouldn’t need the dreaded bag surgery!


I don’t know if you guys truly know how beneficial your product is. I was skeptical at first when my mother-in-law asked me to try it, but after taking it every day for almost 2 years, I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to have access to it!


Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!!! ─ Albert


I’ve been eating this yogurt for about 3 months based on recommendation from my Dr/Naturopath. Suffice It to say it’s been life changing. I’ve had GI issues for years and with so much info on the importance of a healthy microbiome I was anxious to try this yogurt with high probiotic count. I’m a believer! Tried and True. GI issues greatly improved. Side benefit is that my overall mood is better too. More microbiome info (Googled) indicates that Serotonin (brain chemical associated with susceptibility to depression) is primarily made in the gut. With a healthier gut I believe my body is manufacturing the serotonin it needs to support my physical and mental health. I’m not a paid promotor and I do not have a medical or nutrition background. My post is based solely on my personal experience. I just want to share this with people who could benefit.  Having one’s health is EVERYTHING. I haven’t felt this good in over 3 years! ─ Margaret 


A couple of years back, I would use White Mountain Yogurt when creating recipes for my previous food enterprise. Now, years later, I have been going through a worse streak of digestive issues than I have ever had.  After trying various diets (with no luck) that eliminated and then slowly reintroduced potential food sensitivities, I remembered back to those days that I used to eat a lot of White Mountain's Bulgarian style yogurt that we used for the business.  When I was consistently eating this product, not only did my digestion seem to function at an improved level but also my lactose intolerance seemed to also be dramatically reduced!  I made the decision to ditch the diets and get back to a simple addition of a few spoonfuls of White Mountain's yogurt each morning.  The results--within a few days, my digestive issues seemed to [be helped], and I have since given my friends a jar of the product when they tell me they are having similar issues.  I didn't know this was possible, but I am glad that I tried it! Thanks White Mountain for keeping it authentic, time tested, and of the highest quality! ─ David


Hello!  I recently discovered your yogurt at my local Sprouts Farmers Market and I am IN LOVE!!!  I've been having some health issues recently, and my doctor put me on a strong dose of probiotics (225 billion).  The only problem is, it's *super* expensive.  One serving of your Bulgarian yogurt contains a large portion of my daily requirement of probiotics and is also low-carb (works perfectly with my keto diet!).  I just wanted to say thank you for making such a healthy, wonderful product.  You have a customer for life! ─ Emily


Hi! I am currently doing the "GAPS" (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet and your organic whole milk yogurt is the only yogurt I could find that is approved. Thank you! ─ Hayleigh


My mom has [digestive] Disease and [colon disease] and has been battling small bowel cancer for the past 3 years. With so many intestinal problems her diet is very limited. She recently came out to me for a visit and while she was here I turned her on to your Bulgarian Yogurt and she responded wonderfully to it. ─ Stacey


I just wanted to say how much I love your yogurt. I have been lactose free for many years and found that most yogurts bothered my stomach. I saw your Bulgarian Yogurt at Sprouts and was intrigued. I googled it and based off of the information decided to try it. All that I can say is I am hooked! I love it so much that I typically have it for breakfast and dessert. My stomach actually feels [supported] after I have eaten it. I am definitely spreading the word about how wonderful it is!! Thanks for making such a great product! ─ Nikki


Hello, I was recently diagnosed with [digestive disease] and one of the foods that's ok to eat is 24 hour yogurt. My natural doctor who is helping me through my treatment recommended your yogurt. I just have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for making this product (which I purchased at Fresh Market in Miami Beach, FL). It's so hard to find a product with simple ingredients nowadays. Not only is it healthy and beneficial but it also tastes delicious. I will definitely be buying your product again and got another friend from France to purchase your product (she too appreciates the lack of additives in your yogurt!). Thank you again!!! ─ Veronica


I was at the store looking for the kefir my wife had gotten me and something about your whole milk yogurt made me look at it, I was amazed by the number of carbs. I have been fighting with [digestive disease] and [blood disease] that got worse after my kidney transplant. I went keto when I was getting 399 as a fasting blood sugar on 2 different insulins. Your yogurt has helped substantially with the [digestive disease]. I feel like a normal person most days now. Your yogurt is the lowest carb yogurt I can find and that helps me stay low carb and probiotic. I like the jars too. ─ Ed   

I rarely leave reviews, let alone for food products. Lately I've been having digestive issues and have been trying out many different yogurt types. Once I tried the Whole Milk yogurt by White Mountain, I knew I'd be buying this every few days. I'm literally sitting at my computer eating it by the spoonful right now. I feel it's been slowly [helping] my digestive health, and the taste is simply amazing, not to mention such low sugar content and no additives. I doubt I'll ever go without having this in my fridge, both at home and work! ─ Jordan

I LOVE your yogurt.  And I am so addicted.  And in this age of addiction, this is a wonderful one to admit.  Your product is just so wonderful. 


And furthermore, you make a full fat product, which is hard to find.  For seven years I have been battling a rare cancer, and among the problems it has given me has been a difficulty to keep weight on.  Subsequently, I seek the healthiest foods in their fullest format (full fat) without being added to with all sorts of things just to get calories. 


Your product is so gentle on my ailing insides, so nourishing to my needy constitution, and best of all tastes delicious.


If I forgot to say so - THANK YOU! ─ Ang


I just wanted to thank you so much for being a company. You're the first one I've found (after searching 4 years) that makes yogurt that was fermented 24 hour hours. I suffer from [digestive disease] and am currently on the SCD diet. It requires me to hand make my yogurt weekly to maintain proper gut health.


While I have made several batches before, they are inconsistent, require a lot of time and I'm usually low on energy when I do have the time. This leads to me not making it and falling behind on my health.


When I discovered your product in the supermarket I literally yelled out loud "OMG!!". I've never been so happy to see yogurt in my life. Your product is a life saver.


Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. ─ Michael


I have never liked yogurt, but my husband loves White Mountain, and it got me released from the hospital many years ago after major surgery by [supporting] my digestive process. Recently I began eating it every day after years of gastric issues, and it has [helped] my stomach's well-being a lot. ─ Mary

I'm a 26-year-old with a monster of a metabolism. Every morning I would get nauseous, as my stomach would shrink, and hunger turned to discomfort. After reading about probiotics, I started eating hefty doses of your yogurt with granola every morning. The results have been outstanding. Not only is the morning nauseousness [helped], but my ability to digest other foods has noticeably [been supported]. I preach to all my friends about the odd tangy yogurt that helped me get healthy. I've never written to a food company, but you deserve a virtual high-five for making an impact on my health. Thanks! ─ Charles

I have searched for this perfect yogurt since I had an amazing yogurt in Lima, Peru 25 years ago. I happened to stumble upon it when I saw it in the clear glass jar.  After just 2 days I was certain this was not only delicious, it was the healthiest. I recommend your yogurt to all my patients. ─ Carmen, Pediatrician


This is my boyfriend’s absolute favorite product. Because I work in the natural foods industry, he hears a lot about different products I come across, but this has been the one that he can't stop raving about. He suffers with digestive issues occasionally and just a couple of spoonfuls of the yogurt helps almost immediately. We literally have a conversation about your product/company at least a couple times a week! Please keep doing what you're doing:) ─ Haylee


I use Bulgarian Yogurt Probiotic as a result of having had [digestive disease] earlier this year. I love the product because it completely [supports] my problem, eating just one cup every day. ─ Karen


I am a new fan of your Bulgarian yogurt! I had no idea that you guys ferment it for 24 hours because honestly, I'm lactose intolerant and I have no problem whatsoever with your yogurt. I've been eating your yogurt almost every day for 2 weeks and I FEEL a huge difference in my body. I feel really great every time I eat it. I mix mine with organic raw honey and a little granola and it's SO delicious!


Just a suggestion: Not many people know that your Bulgarian yogurt is fermented for 24 hours. I think it would be great if you could put this in HUGE bold lettering right in the front of your jars to differentiate yourselves from all the other mediocre yogurts.

Most people are unaware that Bulgarian yogurt is traditionally fermented for 24 hours and don't realize what a probiotic powerhouse it is! More people need to know about your products because I am officially HOOKED! Please keep doing what you're all doing. You're improving people's health and lives. Thank you, thank you. ─ Liz           


I am currently battling the effects of [digestive disease] after taking a broad-spectrum antibiotic for a sinus infection. Now taking a second antibiotic to counteract the effects of the first antibiotic!! My husband and I shop at HEB in the Vintage Shopping Center on Louetta Road a few miles away from our home. On a recent trip to the grocery store we made an effort to look for a yogurt touting “probiotic” and specifically one with no sweeteners added. I have never been a yogurt eater because I always felt like I was eating spoons full of sugar! It was pure luck (or divine intervention) that I stumbled upon your jar of White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt. Your graphic arts department is to be commended for creating such a fine eye-catching label. I picked up the jar, read the label, and knew that White Mountain was the yogurt for me! I had no idea what to expect from "Bulgarian" yogurt and was surprised by the mildly tart taste. So uniquely different from the 6-pack fruity stuff we've all been fooled into believing is "good" for us!! Adding blueberries to my cup, I am currently enjoying a third jar of White Mountain yogurt in less than two weeks from the day of our original discovery! I have rarely been compelled to offer an opinion on a product, but I just wanted someone to know that your product has given me a sense of power and well-being in an effort to restore my intestinal tract to its former self. : ) I am literally and figuratively your customer for life. Thank you White Mountain! ─ M. White


I discovered your yogurt years ago when I was doing my own experimenting with different brands, comparing taste and nutritional value. This is the best cow's milk yogurt available in my area. I am a physician and I DO recommend it to many of my patients. Keep up the good work! ─ Fred, MD


Just wanted to let you know that I love your yogurt, most especially because it is simple and you don't expand into flavors and other distractions. It is wonderful and totally reminiscent of the wonderful yogurt I've had in Eastern Europe, made by grandmothers who've made it the same way forever. Mostly though I wanted to let you know that for 3 days this week I was in bed with food poisoning struggling with the very unpleasant effects it had on my bowels. When I finally got fed up my wife brought me a container of your yogurt, which I wolfed down in about 20 minutes. I woke up this morning feeling great, stomach [helped], and [supported]. Thank you. Keeping doing what you do. ─ Johnny

Your yogurt is the real deal. The medicinal benefits are noticed after only a couple of days. ─ Zearfoss

I tried your Bulgarian Yogurt.  Absolutely wonderful.  I am lactose intolerant and I no problems with it. ─ Reina

Thank you so much for making fantastic yogurt! Due to mental, spiritual and health issues I have not been able to enjoy dairy for the last 10 years, a fellow farmer introduced me to your yogurt a few weeks ago and I have devoured GALLONS since, THANK YOU! perhaps larger quantities? ─ Jessie


I have suffered with Stomach Problems relating to Digestion and [digestive disease] just about my whole life. I have tried many different products and was in need of finding something that worked to relieve this problem that I was not allergic to due to many food allergies. I purchased some of the White Mountain Bulgarian No-Fat Yogurt and after the first day of eating about 1 cup [it helped] the severe stomach upset that I usually got after eating. It seems to [help] my stomach so it does not hurt or stick out from being constipated. I am very happy to have found it and will refer it to my friends, family and clients. Kind Regards, ─ Janet B., Nutritionist, LMT.

I would like to tell you that our outdoor kitty, Squeaky, had a green and runny bowel problem. I was drinking a smoothie I made from the Bulgarian Yogurt and gave some to the kitty and she drank it. I have given her a smoothie now for 5 days for lunch [which supported her] miraculous recovery. My wife, kitty and I enjoy the yogurt. ─ Rick

Just wanted to let you know how much I love your whole milk (Premium) yogurt - There is absolutely nothing else on the market that comes close to the quality of your product!


Personally, I like to use the yogurt on baked or grilled sweet potatoes (I love the contrast between the two flavors - tart yogurt and sweet potato - Yum!), plus I use about a cup of it to make my daily smoothie. 


I've been eating your yogurt for about 10 years, and I firmly believe that it's my consistent use of your high-quality product that has helped keep me healthy.  I recently turned 50, I rarely fall ill from colds or flu, I don't take any prescription drugs, I don't have any anything, and all my levels (Cholesterol, sugar, etc.) are well within the normal range.


Keep up the great work - I want to still be eating your yogurt when I turn 100! ─ Monica

Our family has used this yogurt for years now and helped us tremendously with all sorts of health issues; [help with] stomach pain, regularity, [supported many other health issues] as well as a great food for everyday mix with gem if you prefer sweet with fruit.  We are originally from Romania and our yogurt back home is just like this one.  We wanted to commend you on your work as a company and dedication in providing good quality food to Texas. ─ Georgiana

White Mountain Yogurt [helped] my CAT!  A few years ago, I adopted what looked like a happy 6-week-old orphaned kitten. Turns out he had chronic [digestive disease], and shortly after bringing him home he began to lose weight. The vet tested him for every imaginable ailment and offered little hope. We spent over $2,000 trying to keep him alive, but still he showed no signs of improvement. A friend mentioned that I should give him White Mountain yogurt. I started giving him one teaspoon in a plastic syringe three times a day. After just a few days I began to notice the [supporting effects with the] [digestive disease]. The yogurt helped replenish the supply of beneficial bacteria and [helped] his intestines. Today he is a healthy cat around 5 years old who brings nothing but joy into my home.  Many thanks to the people at White Mountain for making such a healthy and wonderful product!! ─ Jerry the Cat and Sonya


Your yogurt is absolutely the best on the market. It is a staple in my diet. I consume three gallons a week to help manage chronic intestinal yeast overgrowth subsequent to the autoimmune condition from which I suffer, celiac sprue (gluten intolerance). ─ Dianna


I have had radical stomach and intestine surgery for cancer plus am undergoing chemotherapy. Your yogurt has a calming effect on my digestive tract and I consume about a pint a day. ─ Tom


I wanted to post a shout out to this amazing product from a great, family company in Austin, Texas! My 84-year-old mother, who has Parkinson’s disease, eats two tablespoons every day to help with her digestion problems due to medication for her disease. It helps her nausea and she loves it! We also give a tablespoon to our aging husky who has skin issues, due to his metabolizing problems, and he is doing so much better. Our Colorado family loves this product AND it has helped us feel better:):) Thank you White Mountain!! ─ Anne


The whole milk yogurt is what I buy all the time.  I use it in smoothies, dips, with granola, honey and wheat germ...pretty much a daily food intake. It has helped me with digestion tremendously.  You have a good product.  :) I have tried a lot of yogurts and have stayed with your product. ─ Lisa
